Now in a brand new Fourth Edition, this classic text, which for many years has proved an indispensable reference for complementary therapists using massage in their discipline, has now been carefully updated, considerably enlarged and newly presented.
The book is still usefully divided into clear, easy to use sections, but each now contains far more information. There are 60 vegetable carrier oils discussed in detail, with useful tables, a glossary, a cross-reference chart of common ailments, a thorough index, a discussion of essential fatty acids and their impact on bodily health, and other valuable appendices. Also new for this edition is the inclusion of a wide selection of culinary recipes created to combine the therapeutic value of the carrier oils with flavourful, simple to prepare, healthy meals. A bible for all complementary practitioners and a veritable storehouse of knowledge for anyone interested in increasing their understanding of carrier oils.
This celebrated book, the first of its kind – is unmissable.
